Speaker locations

Asked by Feb 25, 2014 at 04:31 PM about the 2014 Toyota Camry XLE

Question type: General

Toyota says 10 speakers in 8 locations. Okay, I'll buy that but in my XLE I have only one
large speaker in the left side of the rear deck, the right side for the large speaker is
empty, it just has a blank plate wher the speaker should be. This would make for an odd
number of speakers. Anyone know why?

Your Camry came with the JBL GreenEdge stereo with the 10 speakers in 8 locations. Usually a stereo system is all about equal sound to your left and right. In this case that is actually a sub woofer. The rear speakers are in closer to the back seat. They all have a fake piece on the other side.

Wrong. The ONE rear deck speaker is a mid-range unit. There are no speakers "closer in" to the rear seat. You do have two tweeters on the rear deck, but the system only comes with one mid-range deck unit.

Right from Toyota: Entune™ Premium JBL® Audio with Navigation13 and App Suite14 — includes the Entune™ Multimedia Bundle4 (7-in. high-resolution touch-screen with split-screen display, AM/FM CD player with MP3/WMA playback capability, ten JBL® GreenEdge™ speakers in eight locations including subwoofer and amplifier, auxiliary audio jack, USB 2.0 port5 with iPod®6 connectivity and control, advanced voice recognition,7 hands-free phone capability, phone book access and music streaming8 via Bluetooth®9 wireless technology), HD Radio,™12 HD predictive traffic and Doppler weather12 overlay, AM/FM cache radio, SiriusXM Radio11 with 90-day All Access trial, and Gracenote® music features –

I agree with Russelk. My 2015 Toyota Camry XLE is exactly as he says. I don't like the speakers arrangement. It needs another mid-range unit in the rear deck on the passenger side.


2015 XLE with the JBL system. I have a Kicker Hideaway powered subwoofer which improves the bass but the driver's seat blocks out a lot of the sound from the right rear tweeter and the large mid speaker. Fading is useless from the driver's seat but OK from the passenger seat which has an open diagonal path to those speakers. Toyota should have either put the second larger mid speaker in or moved the one speaker to the center of the rear deck. Any audio engineer could have seen/heard this design flaw immediately.

I, too, was wondering where & what type of speakers in Camry XLE. I wanted to have a "surround" musical experience. I had to move the fader to 90% to the rear speakers to be able to hear both front & rear speakers. Then I have to have volume up above 70% to hear front speakers. Ughh.
